About Winnifred de Calmes

Her ancestors are not definitively known but it is surmised that she descends from Sir William Waller (born in 1527), a celebrated Parliamentary General two of whose descendants, Edmund and John Waller, came to the Colonies. (Biography of William Waller, 1890). She is supposed to have been the daughter of John Waller III of Westmoreland County, son of John Waller II and wife, Dorothy King, who was the son of John Waller I, the immigrant. (Virginia Genealogies, 1891, William & Mary Quarterly, Volume 5 Number 3, pp176-8).

Thomas H. Pope, a descendant of William B. Calmes of Newberry, South Carolina, and a person who has done much research, writes that Winnifred Waller was the daughter of William Waller, Jr., and that land owned by William Waller, Sr., was adjacent to land granted to Marquis Calmes by Lord Fairfax. Mr. Pope also writes, "Proceedings resulting in the grant of 400 acres to William Waller were commenced after the deaths father, William Waller, Sr., and of one Gerrard Master, an alien, to whome had been granted 800 acres on July 2, 1699. (Patent Book 5, page 237, Cavliers and Pioneers, Nell Marion Nugent, Volume 2, 1666-1695, page 60). William Waller, Sr., died before the land could be divided. When Masters died, title to the entire tract was in him. As an alien, his land would ascheat to the Colongy. William Waller, Jr., and Richard Fassaker therefore petitioned and were granted 400 acres each." (Northern Neck Land Grants, 1694-1742, page 6, page 237, Grant Book 2, page 67).
